I was staring at the Gun and I'm sure I saw it moving.      ;)

A truly great piece of work your doing there young man. I'm following your build with fascination as I don't seem to have your detailed modelling ability.  Keep em coming   :-)) :-))

Re: FINISHED MY SECOND FLOWER CLASS BUILD. Possibly my last build
« Reply #59 on: September 25, 2010, 12:58:11 pm »

The build is now finished and is awaiting its maiden voyage.

This could possibly be my last build on the forum as I am getting to think that there are not enough boat builders here now but more than enough people who seem to have no interest in boats at all [ check out how many current builds ] plus too many people waiting to jump on you if they dont agree with what you say.

That's looking pretty good Dicky and an appropriate level of North Atlantic weathering to bring it to life.  I'm tempted to buy one of these kits just to have for the retirement fund as they do make into a lovely model and a straightforward job to RC it.

Looking forward to seeing how she performs on the water.

Hi Dicky, Another great model and in about a month too.  I am looking forward to seeing you build that Armidale hull.
I trust you will consider very carefully before leaving this forum -  it is people like you that helped people like me build better
models because of the wide knowledge you have about most things to do with this hobby of ours.  Hope to see you
building when you have got that puppy trained to leave the flowers in the garden.

Great looking Corvette DickyD! And you finished before me too!! Love the battered look, I hope to make mine look just as weathered looking.. :-))

As for possibly being your last build on here, well that would be a real shame. Your help and tips on my own Flower build have been so important that I fear to do anymore without your steady eye watching over it. I have also loved watching your other recent warship builds and would love to see your next one on here.

Thanks for the build Dicky, Great job, makes me regret selling mine few years back, which was also done as HMS.Campanula, and i have no photos of her,                                         

maybe Revell will reissue the kit in a few years time.

Hi Dicky,

Reckon a few builders are too shy to put their efforts on display, it's a little bit like public speaking, some can some can't  <:( <:(.
Have followed your build and saved images for reference. O0 O0
I too am also looking forward to your build of the "Armidale". :-)) :-))

Sorry chaps, no more builds. I have been given a yellow card with no means to appeal so no more from me, I shall not be cancelling my membership of the forum as I want my builds and photos to help others where possible and if I were to go my photos would go with me. 18 builds is quite a lot. After all this time its a shame.

Smashing build  (as usual)     :-)) :-))

I notice from your pictures above that the Captain is leaving the Bridge.

Now you tell him to get right back up there and steer through all this.

ps   That's me at the stern pointing the way to go.      O0

to quote Dicky "after all this time it is a shame" Too right it is.  You could put up a list of good model builders
on this forum  and Dicky would be on it. Same goes for people prepared to share they extensive knowledge of how
to build, where to buy,  where to find out the info, and occasionally contraversial (but within bounds as far as I can see)
I hope he reconsiders.
